A lot of memories about this place.... some good, some bad. Was here for Boot Camp, January thru March 1966. Extremely cold.
My son graduated from here last year. I loved it here and would recommend the Navy to anyone going into the military.
Nephew just graduated. He is now a United States Sailor.
